A Brand New Book

We hear it all the time that we are about to embark on a new chapter in our lives, but by now I think I am about to begin an entire new book of my life.   In the past two years I have gone through more than what I could have ever imagined for myself. It seems that the saying, 'when life gives you lemons, make lemonade,'  really has become a prime motto of mine.

Today I headed to London to pick courses and make a time table for my next year of University.  The previous day I had graduated from Fanshawe, talk about closing one door and opening another!  Although Kings is small compared to the main campus of Western, I felt a sense of maturity just walking into the building, I was now a university student!

As time goes on I begin to realize that I am capable of so much and that diabetes is only a part of me.  I think I am walking proof that diabetes is not an excuse to back down nor an excuse to give up; rather, that extra push to try hard and motivate those around you.

I am really excited for this new 'book' of my life, I know that it will be full of great success stories as well as stories of hope and determination.  Of course I am expecting bumps in the road; however, I am prepared to conquer them with all that I have.

Diabetes may get a free education out of me, but I won't let it take me off course.
